More Central High Layouts

The pressure is on. All three drawers in my 12 x 12 storage set up have kits in them. I need to finish off Central High so there will be room for my new kit that should be arriving any day. I have completed a couple of new layouts this week and I am hoping to do another couple by the weekend so I can call that kit done and put the remains into my stash and scraps pile. I still have two full pieces of PP and quite a lot of decent sized scraps left at this stage. Those whole pages' days are numbered.

This layout was a total scraplift of a layout by Susan Weinroth that appeared on the Studio Calico blog last week. I loved the way hers looked and took the papers that were available to me in my kit and added some washi , flair and those super versatile Amy Tangerine letters. I also finally cracked open the ribbon that came with the kit. I really loved the PP I have used as the background for this layout. I am so excited to have finally made use of those beautiful Indie Chic chevrons.

I feel a bit cheeky even including this layout as all I really did was cut down the photo, added a couple of pieces of chipboard from the new Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic collection, added an Amy Tangerine lettering title and a spot of journalling. I liked this patterned paper such a lot that I decided not to ruin it by adding too much extra to it. Still, it tells a story I wanted to tell and that is really what it is all about.

Right I am off to buy a fish tank. My daughter came home from school today with almost a dozen baby fish from her field trip! I haven't the heart to let them die so I will have to go and buy the cheapest tank and pump I can find and give them a chance at life. Here's hoping we can keep the cat away from them! The things we mothers do!


  1. Great pages Claire. And you are a good Mum doing that!! My sweetpea got fish the other day and lucky it has a lid so the cats can't stick their paws in. I still worry though as it doesn't fit quite right

  2. I hope the fishes survives, I used that second paper you used too just like it was but with a bit decorations on it and also thought it was a bit to easy. You can find my page here:

  3. Those are great layouts, Claire!
    And it's so sweet of you to buy a fish tank, hopefully the fishies will survive...

  4. These are fab! Good luck with the fishies!

  5. Very cute pages Claire! I keep meaning to do a quick page with the BG paper too, but it is still sitting in my 'to scrap' pile:)

  6. i laughed so loud when i saw on IG that she had brought fish home with!!!
    glad they are now in a tank!!!

    love the layout too
